Key Points of the Maine Dialect ~ Something You Probably Don't Know About Me!

I spent over 25 years living in Southern Maine.  So it shouldn't be a surprise that I picked up the accent.  When my husband was transferred  to San Diego, Marcus and I joined him. People would comment that they didn't understand me.  They thought I was from Canada.  What?!  "That's wicked crazy"!

Our son likes to say I have 2 voices, the professional phone voice and Maine voice.  He's right!
